B.Sc Biotechnology and Genetics

OVERVIEW AND SCOPE OF MAJOR DISCIPLINES

Biotechnology
Biotechnology harnesses the power and prowess of the living world to address issues and offer solutions in the areas of research, health-care, agriculture, and environment. It is a multi-disciplinary science involving a variety of distinct subjects where living organisms or their derivatives are modified and put into effective use in catering the welfare of humanity. Applications of Biotechnology have been found in several sectors including Agriculture, Food Science and Medicine. The course introduces the students to detailed study of Cell Biology, Genetics, Microbiology, Biophysics, Molecular Biology, Recombinant DNA Technology, Genetic Engineering, Environmental Biotechnology, Animal Biotechnology, Immunology, Industrial Biotechnology and Plant Biotechnology.

Genetics
Genetics covers the study of genes, gene variations and heredity. It encompasses human & animal genetics as well as plant genetics. It enables the student to understand genetic conservation, gene bank management, in vitro conservation, in situ conservation, crop genetic modification, animal breeding etc. A sound knowledge of genetics is essential for an understanding of all other fields of biology particularly cytology, embryology, molecular biology, physiology, etc. The course is structured in such a way that the students get a chance to explore the theoretical and practical aspects of the subject in depth.
